Google Cultural Institute, founded in 2011, offers cultural heritage intuitions an opportunity to share their amazing collections with the world. In turn the user is given an opportunity to explore collections they might not be able to access otherwise; but also, to experience the collections in a way that is not better than seeing them in person, but different.
I encourage you to first check out this TED talk given by Amit Sood, director of Google’s Cultural Institute and Art Project. And then explore Google Arts & Culture yourself.
Congratulations to the IT & Campus Services departments. This is their second consecutive pumpkin contest win! This year’s voting results were SO close, and all submissions deserve a huge round of applause. Make sure to join in the fun next October to see if you can out-craft the reigning champions.
It’s time to VOTE for your favorite entry in this years’ Pumpkin Decorating Contest. Check out the large display case on the first floor of the library to see all the contest entries. Then stop by the library service desk to vote for your favorite!
The last day to vote is Sunday, October 30th. When you vote, you’ll have a chance to enter a raffle to win a Halloween goody bag. The winners of both the Pumpkin Decorating Contest and the raffle will be announced the next day on Halloween!
Here’s a look at this year’s contest entries. This year’s theme was “Fairy Tales”.
